Astronism in Estonia refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Estonia. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Estonia, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Estonia oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Estonia is split into fifteen counties and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Tallinn.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Estonia including:
- Astro-Estonian philosophy
- Astro-Estonian religion
- Astro-Estonian spirituality
- Estonian astroncy
- Estonian Astronism
- Estonian astronomical religion
- Estonian Cosmism
- Estonian space religion
History of Astronism in Estonia
Astronism is not currently recognised as a religion in the Republic of Estonia, however, the Astronist Institution has not raised any concerns of violations of religious liberties for Astronists in the country as was demonstrated by its designation of the situation there as apathetic.
According to the Astronist Institution's figures collected in December 2020, the number of Astronists in Estonia numbered at 5,688. The translation of Astronist content into Estonia has not yet begun as of late 2020 which presents a considerable to people gaining access to the full array of Astronist content, as is the case in many other nations where English is not a widely spoken language.
